Creating the perfect children's book for kids is a wonderfully enjoyable collaborative process.
You have worked hard to craft the perfect story and finding an illustrator to do justice to your story can be daunting.
I am a published illustrator with many years of experience crafting illustrations for a diverse range of book projects. I am happy to work with authors directly or through arrangements with publishing houses.
1. Pencil Scribbles: A basic set of pencil roughs blocking in the story, designed to get a feel for what the author and illustrator are thinking. This is an opportunity for the author to make comments.
2. Refined Pencil Roughs: A detailed set of pencil roughs including character development. Another opportunity here for the author to make comments.
3. Colour Sample: One full-color illustration will be supplied for author approval before proceeding.
4. Final artwork: A set of high-resolution digital illustrations
This Package is based around a standard 32-page picture book, which includes illustrations for the cover, end pages, title page, and 15 double-page spreads.
This package assigns the rights of the illustrations to the author. Alternatively, we can discuss other payment options, including royalties where the copyright remains with the illustrator.
Illustrations for a typical children's book take at least three months to complete.
When the author and illustrator work in harmony together a great picture book emerges. I look forward to working with you to bring your story to life and providing a home where my illustrations can breathe.
I am happy to chat more about the process if anything is unclear and the price if you feel other arrangements would suit your situation. I can also help with designing the text of the book and preparing files for printing.
